Drexel University

James Murphy replaced a dilapidated three unit apartment building he owned on the campus of Drexel University with a modern, energy efficient eleven unit, three story, apartment building in 2007. The building was designed and constructed to minimize tenant utility expenses and building maintenance expenditures. Operational cost savings were achieved by employing rain screen wall technology that eliminates exterior thermal transfer, specifying energy efficient lighting and appliances and paying particular attention to construction detailing. The result: two bedroom, two bath all electric apartments that consume $90 to $120 dollars a month of electric usageā€¦ during winter months!
